Kate and Kate




I got these pants at our latest consignment sale last week. They are Hannah Kate. I just couldn't resist with all the dogs on them! And, she looked beautiful wearing them. Sometimes I just can't believe that she is our daughter. Oh, to have half her hair!

Kate turned 4 years old yesterday! It's hard to swallow that your child is 4. But yes, I know - just wait until she gets older... but I just got to get used to it! Her birthday party is on Saturday, so I will have many, many more pictures to share then.

Oh - a funny story about Kate and Mousey (our cat):

Yesterday, for some reason, I noticed that I hadn't seen Mousey. I thought one of the kids may have let her outside, but after looking outside, no cat. So, I then I stared looking around the house. I asked the kids if they had seen her, and they hadn't. The search was on - opening doors, closets, beds... no Mousey. Then I heard Kate yelling from across the house, "Mama, ...... Mousey...." I found her and asked where Mousey was - and she said:

"She is in the second DRAWER of MY BATHROOM"...

So, I go down the hall, to the bathroom, and open the drawer. Mousey stretches her legs out, starts purring, hops out and struts down the hallway. Needless to say, we had a "talk" about not putting Mousey ANYWHERE. But, I secretly had a laugh about it...

These are the very best times with your little ones. Cherish every minute with them, watch them grow, teach them much, play with them often, laugh and giggle as much as possible, and share kisses and hugs at every turn. It just passes all too quickly and they turn into teenagers. Then you want to toss them out on their ears! LOL-JK!

Kristi, Love the pants! Do they come in XXL? That is so funny about the cat. I find mine in the bathtub chasing his tail! He is probably crazy from living at Duckworth. Did Kate like her bow?
We would all love that gorgeous baby hair and baby skin.
Happy Birthday Miss Kate!!
Ms. Donna

So, you are the one who sent the bow! We had no idea where it came from, but it is adorable with the horse in the center! Thank you!

Too funny!

SWEET! adorable pictures of her.

I did not realize our girls were that close to the same age. She was four in December. It really is hard to swallow. Lily seems to be developing a bigger personalilty and so much attitude. Sometimes I don't LIKE it at all.

I missed the sale this year :-(
what a great buy you found though.

Can't wait to see the party pics...

HA! Love that. She really does look beautiful with that brown bow in her hair. Adorable. Congrats on having a 4 year old. It just keeps getting better. I think 4 was my favorite age!!! No, wait...maybe 3...no, 5....no--6 naw, they are all great. Love it!
